"What was it now 'Do no....... ?'"
I believe it was "Do no[t do anything to diminish The Bottom Line]"
On a side note, we all know the real reasons the US invaded Iraq and overthrew its democratic* government, but the publicized reasons were to get rid of the WMDs** and to "democratize" the country. Not only that, but the president has said he wants to "democratize" and bring freedom to the world. And yet, two of the countries we do most of our business with, China and India, are quite freedomless. We simply overlook the fact that China is communist and has a list of human rights violations longer than Bush's list of failures and misstatements. And now we find that India is so freedomless that you can't even state a negative *opinion* about a politician without being thrown in jail? All the while, we say it's Cuba we need to protect our citizens from***.
* For the sake of this post, let's not argue about whether it was a real or fake/coerced democracy, as it's not relevant to my point
** Let's not even discuss this one
*** Unless you're talking about Cuba's baseball players, in which case we're happy to deal with them
